Hello

Ok. Time to stop the fannying about and fretting about writing the perfect introduction post and just get on and say HI. It's not a bloody query letter, for lord's sake! And most of you seem very friendly.

A huge thanks for letting me join your club. It feels even better considering I'm sneaking in by the skin of my teeth; there's a definite frisson. I'm very excited to be part of this community and can't wait to get racing.

More thanks to all of you who have been visiting and commenting on my blog, it's much appreciated. Tappy Lappy is very much still in its infancy and does tend to wobble off topic occasionally, so it's good to have some Novel Racers reminding me of its true raison d'etre.

A bit about me...I'm a gal, living in London with a very hairy man, trying to run a business and write a bestseller or two. Or simply getting published would be enough at this point. I work in theatre (the actor-y sort, rather than cutting people open) and have had several children's plays and adaptations performed professionally, which can be a mixed blessing.

Currently I'm revising a fairytale for a winter tour, editing a chapter book for children and 70,000 odd words into the first draft of my first bit o' Chick Lit. I love it, although I frequently feel like I've got a mountain to climb with my novel and my writing in general. I'm too damn impatient and want to be better now now now!

I'll be stopping by as many of your individual blogs as I can on a regular basis for support, inspiration and brain picking.

Keep on tapping away,

KayJay.

Hi KayJay and welcome:))

Wobbling off topic is no bad thing... we just have to find a pseudo-writerly excuse for doing it that often revolves around chocolate and stationery!

Happy tapping and welcome aboard X

Oh yes, wobbling off the writing subject is my speciality, so absolutely no need to worry about that. Welcome to the novel racers.
